    1383701460

    Enamored of the Dodge Challenger but wish you could get one with a shaker hood? We've got good news, because Dodge and Mopar have teamed up to bring it back. The 2014 Dodge Challenger R/T Shaker packs the same 5.7-liter Hemi V8 as the standard Challenger R/T, but upgrades the business end...

    SEMA: Mazda hits Vegas with a pair of Sixes
    1383699540

    Despite the fact that the annual SEMA show is more of an exercise in what "could be" than what "will be," it gives automakers the chance to stretch the legs of some of its most important models. Take the 2014 Mazda6, for example – it's hardly new, having gone on sale early this year...

    SEMA: Ford Fiesta ST customs get wild at SEMA
    1383697260

    The massive 57-car SEMA showcase by Ford ranges from obvious aftermarket-friendly models like the Mustang, to the not so obvious ones, like the Transit Connect and cute-as-an-explosive-button Fiesta ST. Ford plucked several Fiesta STs for SEMA duty, and we were on the show floor today to get a...

    SEMA: Jeff Gordon's SS Performance Sedan Concept unleashes car's potential
    1383693660

    Compared to the stock Chevrolet SS sports sedan, Jeff Gordon's version looks much meaner (in a good way). Somehow it comes off as more butch than the upgrades would suggest, almost as if it has a wide-body kit (compare the Chevrolet Jeff Gordon SS Performance Sedan Concept to the near-production...

    SEMA: Chevrolet Corvette concept duo is our kind of East Coast-West Coast battle
    1383692400

    Car culture on each coast of the US has historically been markedly different, and Chevrolet aims to show some of the differences with a pair of Corvette concepts at SEMA. Representing the East Coast is the Corvette Stingray Convertible Atlantic concept, while the Corvette Stingray Coupe Pacific...

    SEMA: Three of four Focus STs show up in Ford display at SEMA
    1383689940

    A couple of weeks ago we highlighted four Focus STs that Ford said it would be bringing to SEMA, and three out of the four cars have made it thus far (sorry, no Lotus-themed Focus ST yet). We were really looking forward to the Gulf-themed Focus ST built by Universal Technical Institute (below,...

    SEMA: Toyota CamRally is vanilla spiced
    1383688800

    We weren't quite sure it was possible, but NASCAR driver Parker Kligerman and the other folks behind this Toyota Dream Build Challenge vehicle (check out the other cars in the challenge) have made the Camry, a versatile but vanilla family sedan, into a performance car to be reckoned with. And by...

    SEMA: Chevy Corvette Gran Turismo concept will bridge the digital divide in GT6
    1383686460

    If you guessed that the C7 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray would be in heavy rotation at this year's SEMA show, you'd be right. The new Corvette is one of the hottest cars on the planet these days, and the halls here in Las Vegas are chocked full of modified examples that range from bananas to...

    SEMA: Toyota bids farewell to FJ Cruiser with Ultimate Edition at SEMA
    1383685140

    Happy trails, to you... As we reported back in August, the FJ Cruiser is headed to the great automotive graveyard in the sky, and Toyota is offering a fitting eulogy in the form of the 2014 Trail Teams Ultimate Edition, which was just unveiled here at the 2013 SEMA Show. Unlike many special...

    SEMA: Ford vandalizes the SEMA Show floor with 2014 Transit Connect
    1383682740

    The Ford booth here at SEMA is practically a 1970s throwback with all these customized vans sitting front and center. And we're completely fine with that. Take the black and yellow (black and yellow, black and yellow) 2014 Transit Connect from Mobsteel above. It's got a great stance, sits on...

    1383678120

    Unveiled just blocks from the Las Vegas Strip, the 2014 Chevrolet COPO Camaro made its big debut at SEMA preparing to hit a different kind of strip. This purpose-built drag car is pretty much a carryover from recent COPO cars, with just 69 planned for production, and with the new 2014 Camaro...

    How A Hybrid Becomes A Hot Hatch 1383674340

    Rumormill: Could the Chevy Silverado Cheyenne concept be headed for production?
    1383672480

    Just a few days ago Chevy dropped the news of its Silverado Cheyenne concept truck, a high-power pickup with Camaro Z/28 parts that looks an awful lot like the spiritual successor to hot-rod trucks like the the GMC Syclone. Theoretically, a performance pickup like the Cheyenne could do serious...

    SEMA: Chevy brings Bumblebee, new Transformers 4 Corvette and Sonic to SEMA
    1383631800

    Michael Bay may not have been around to pull the sheets (though he did beam a recorded message of thanks to the crowd), but three of the automotive stars of his upcoming Transformers 4 blockbuster were shown in Las Vegas tonight, just ahead of SEMA's opening day tomorrow. As you'd expect, all...

    1383593520

    While you're bound to see more American and Asian cars at SEMA than you will European ones, Volkswagen stands as a notable exception. This year VW is showcasing its new EA888 turbocharged four-cylinder engines with a pair of customized Jettas. First up is the Racers Dream in Black and White,...
